Turmeric prices went up by 1.28 per cent to Rs 7,120 per quintal in futures market today after participants built up fresh positions, driven by upsurge in demand in the spot market. Besides, tight stocks position on fall in supplies from growing regions fuelled the uptrend.

Likewise, the spice for delivery in September rose by Rs 72, or 1.03 per cent, to Rs 7,050 per quintal in 17,680 lots.
